Entropy ( http://www.mdpi.com/journal/entropy ) invites submissions to the special issue “The Interplay Between Storage, Computing, and Communications from An Information-Theoretic Perspective”.
Full details of the scope and submission can be found at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/entropy/special_issues/Storage_Computing_Communications_Information_Theory
In the age of the internet of things, billions of physical devices with local computational power and local data storage are connected through ubiquitous communication links. This has led to the distribution of logical computations and storage across many physical devices, enabling a multitude of new applications. These applications have created a complex intertwined relationship among storage, computing, and communications.
This special issue aims to consolidate recent advancement in the fundamental understanding of problems that build on the interplay between storage, computing, and communications. More specifically, these problems study how to efficiently perform tasks, from an information-theoretic perspective, that jointly optimizes distributed computation at different nodes and communications among them through the use of local storage.
You are invited to contribute a manuscript for consideration and possible publication in this Special Issue. If you have interest, you could send your manuscript now or up until the deadline ( 31 October 2020 ). Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.
